Get Lean and Mean in the Zone That is Green!
December 8, 2011 2 Comments
Boomers Abroad is now featuring in its health travel on-line magazine an animated movie about Green Zone LAP-BAND . It’s going to be a star in the bariatric procedures firmament, and certainly not just for Boomers but for everyone. Check it out and you’ll be among the first to hear The LAP-BAND Rap! It’s not going to win any Grammy’s but it’s the catchiest rap about a medical device, for sure
Get lean and mean in the zone that is green isn’t worthy of Eminem, but it did contain some good information about this new minimally invasive weight loss procedure.
The Green Zone LAP-BAND procedure takes 20 minutes under a general anesthesia. Patients can go home within 24 hours – and because they received their first band fill inter-operatively, weight loss begins right away Most patients will not need to return to the doctor for a fill for as long as 5 months! This is a welcome departure from regular LAP-BAND, in which patients have to wait a few weeks or even months before their first band fill.
This benefit is made possible by the Endoflip device, which provides the obesity surgeon with 16 real-time images of the gastrointestinal tract, thus moving precise band placement out of the realm of art, and into the real of measurement. It’s great news for patients, who can begin the business of losing weight sooner rather than later.
With Green Zone LAP-BAND the first fill actually takes place during the surgery itself, so patients (like Jacquelyn) leave the hospital with a perfect restriction for immediately optimal weight loss.
